Tel Aviv will soon have a very substantial addition to its skyline – a fourth Azrieli Center tower, this time in the shape of a spiral, to join the city’s landmark trio of buildings. Once completed, it is set to be the tallest tower in Israel.
Well now, this is interesting. Construction work has begun on what will be the tallest building in Israel, part of the Azrieli Center in Tel Aviv. The building looks stunningly like a 21st century version of the Tower of Babel from the bible, with the price tag coming in right around $666 million dollars, approximately. Even more interesting is the logo of the Azrieli Group with its large, Masonic capital “G” that intersects with a pyramid topped with a blue capstone. All that’s missing is the number “33” to make the imagery complete. So what to make of all this?
“Therefore is the name of it called Babel; because the LORD did there confound the language of all the earth: and from thence did the LORD scatter them abroad upon the face of all the earth.” Genesis 11:9 (KJV)
OK, so it looks like the Tower of Babel, has 91 floors (9/11??), it costs right around $666 million dollars, and the Azrieli Group has a crazy creepy Illuminati and Masonic-themed logo. Hmm. I guess all I can do is put it in a big, fat ‘prophecy pile’ together with Mike Pompeo’s teasing of a rebuilt Temple in Jerusalem and Jared Kushner, who owns a building at 666 Fifth Ave, that was financed by George Soros, preparing to implement a ‘new and different‘ Middle East peace plan. Is this for real, or did I swallow a ‘Left Behind‘ novel for breakfast this morning?
Things are speeding up quickly now, people, pay close attention or you’re going to miss it.
Tel Aviv to Add Fourth Azrieli Center Tower; Will Be Tallest Building in Israel
FROM THE TOWER: The 91-story spiral tower will be almost 1,150 feet (350 meters) tall and will include commercial, office and residential areas as well as a hotel. The top floors are to house conference rooms, spaces for meetings and entertainment and a 360-degree lookout. A garden and chef restaurant will be on the roof.
Digging and piling work is already underway, and construction is expected to be completed within six or seven years. The total cost of the project is estimated at ₪2.5 billion (over $650 million).
“The architecture of the spiral tower reflects the boldness and creativity of the Azrieli Group, which redefines Tel Aviv’s skyline with each new project,” Azrieli Group Chairwoman Dana Azrieli said at the project’s unveiling on Wednesday.
“The tower was planned and developed in a unique geometric shape, never before seen in Israel, which captures the eye and the imagination. The main challenge for the initiators and architects was to create harmony between the three iconic towers that form Azrieli Center and the new tower, an impressive, one-of-a-kind structure which stands on its own. The tower’s design takes inspiration from the twists of a snail’s shell, attempting to imitate their natural form. The design also draws inspiration from ancient biblical scrolls and the way they unfurl upwards.” – KPF
“The exceptional financial investment in the project is a testament to our great confidence in the Israeli economy and its growth, and continues the strategy that has led us in building the country for over three decades,” she said.
The spiral tower was designed by the American Kohn Pedersen Fox architecture firm, which has designed five out of the 10 tallest skyscrapers in the world. Israeli firm Moshe Tzur Architects & Town Planners is working with KDF on the project.
The tower’s spiral shape, according to its planners, draws inspiration from the curves of a snail shell. Biblical scrolls were another source of inspiration. Once completed, the new building will unfurl dramatically above the existing circular, triangular and square-shaped Azrieli Center buildings. Those three 50-story buildings, which include a shopping mall, commercial and office space, were completed between 1998 and 2007.
The new tower will expand the Azrieli Center footprint by almost three acres, for a total area of more than 12 acres. The complex will constitute a major transportation hub, connecting the existing Hashalom railway station with the light-rail network now under construction in the Tel Aviv district, as well as the many bus lines.
Some 100,000 people are expected to pass through the expanded center every day. READ MORE
